1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
2. Butter and flour two 6-inch (15 cm) cake pans.
3 .Melt the butter and set it aside to cool.
4. Beat the eggs and sugars until they become fluffy and lighter in color and texture, which should take about 3 minutes. Then, add the melted butter and vanilla and beat until well combined.
5. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Stir this mixture into the batter until it's just smooth.
6. Peel and grate the carrots. Put the peaches (without the juice) in a blender or food processor and process until smooth.
7. Add the grated carrots and 2/3 cup of the peach puree to the batter and stir until combined. Divide the batter between the two cake pans.
8. Bake for about 40-43 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out clean.
9. Let the cakes cool in the pans for 20 minutes, then turn them out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

for the cream cheese frosting
1. Beat butter until it's pale and fluffy. Add the cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla and beat until mixture is smooth. You can chill this frosting in the fridge while you prepare the cake.

assembly
1. Cut both cake layers in half with a serrated knife so you end up with four cake layers.
2. Place the first cake layer on a cake board or directly on a plate or cake stand. Spread a layer of frosting on the first layer, then add a layer of the peach puree. Repeat this process until you've used up all the layers.
3. Spread a thin layer of frosting all over the cake and put it in the fridge while you prepare the topping.

1. Slice the fresh peaches. Heat the butter over medium heat in a non-reactive skillet. Add the brown sugar and swirl it with a wooden spoon until the sugar melts.
2. Add the peach slices and caramelize them for 2-3 minutes. Allow them to cool completely, then arrange them on top of the cake, adding fresh blackberries for that extra touch of elegance and flavor.

Bon appétit!
